Betros Garabet is wanted for his alleged involvement in a health
care fraud scheme that cost Medicare in excess of $400,000 in
fraudulent claims. Garabet allegedly operated a fraudulent medical
clinic in Pomona, California, between September of 2004 and January
of 2006, and posed as a medical doctor, despite not being licensed
to practice medicine. Medicare beneficiaries, many of whom were
elderly or mentally disabled, were transported from across Southern
California to the clinic for unnecessary treatments and services.
Garabet would then allegedly bill Medicare for the services, which
were not performed by a licensed physician, not medically necessary,
and in some cases not performed at all.
On February 7, 2007, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the
United States District Court, Central District of California, after
Garabet was charged with health care fraud and aiding and abetting.
The FBI is offering a reward for information leading directly to
the arrest of Betros Garabet.
